Is the insulation in your attic working?


When temperatures linger around -5 and zero degrees Celsius, depending on the amount of snow there is on your shingles, you can see where the snow is melting.

When you set your thermostat to room temperature of 23 degrees Celsius during cold winter months, your insulation keeps the hot air stay inside. If the insulation is 30 + years old, it will become compressed and lose its R Rating. Homes that are 30 + years have serious ice dam issues due to heat loss caused by poor insulation and/or compromised vapour barrier.

Most modern homes have blown insulation in the attic, with a dept of 18 inches once its settled. To maintain your carbon print and keep your home energy efficient, it is highly recommended to upgrade insulation, roof, underlay, ice&water shield and new high flow roof ventilation.

If you spend 20k for instant on new roof, insulation ect… your heating bill will reduce by atleast 35 % and if we calculate that by 20 years, money spent on energy efficiency pays itself off in the long run.
